"Love/Sick" by John Cariani
From the writer of "Almost, Maine" comes a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious vignettes about the pain and joy that comes with being in love.
Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love.
Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, LOVE/SICK is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.
"A whimsical romantic comedy. In the nine vignettes that make up the play, couples meet, or break apart, or learn to love each other more? the jokes here are easygoing and snark-free."
-The New York Times
"Sometimes playwright John Cariani looks at the world?actually the worlds?of love and relationships through rose-colored glasses. Just as often he views those worlds through lenses tinted a middling-to-dark-gray or maybe a jaundiced yellow. While poking fun at the happily-ever-after notion by means of a strong dose of happily-never-after, Cariani shoots his cockeyed valentines with a quiver full of funny lines. He knows how to keep audiences laughing while passing along disappointing news."
